Dad, It's Time You Know What I See When I See You
Arizona Birzgalis

Dear Dad,

I think it is time I tell you what I see when I see you.

I see a man who is selfless, who puts everyone else before himself.

I see a man who is pouring out with love and forgiveness.

I see a man with rough hands from working so hard for others.

I see a man with a bad back from baring everyone else's problems and tears and holding them as if they were his own.

I see a father who wants nothing but the best for me.

I think it is time I tell you how much you have impacted me.

You have made me grown into who I am today.

You have made me believe that I can be whatever I want to be.

You have made me understand the world around me.

You have taught me to love like the way you love my mom.

You have taught me to forgive, even when it is hard.

You have made me strong, determined, and driven.

You have taught me how men should treat women.

I think it is time to tell you what I admire about you.

I admire how you have worked so hard to provide for everyone around you.

I admire how you are so kind-hearted.

I admire how you love so deeply for people.

I admire how much you love god.

I admire how you are patient.

I admire how you are so hardworking.

I admire you for everything that you are.

I don't think I've ever told you any of this, or maybe I have and you need to be reminded. You are my super dad. You are my rock and my idol. You are everything I hope and strive to be.

Thank you for being you.


Your daughter

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
